Vision – got one? need one?

Some businesspeople love to talk about having a vision or the difficulty when an organization doesn’t have a vision. It seems like everybody believes they HAVE to have a vision before they do anything. Lack of vision is sometimes used as a criticism of an executive or even a sports coach.

Today I saw a quote that turns that idea upside down.

“Vision isn’t forecasting the future,
it is creating the future
by taking action in the present.”

Vision isn’t about fluffy words or phrases or images. It’s about action.

Do you know what you want? Are you willing to take action to get it?

When you can answer those two questions, you’ve got a vision.
